Class Experience

Students will expand their understanding of various aspects of storytelling for novels. We will be discussing basic tips for prewriting, drafting, other tips and tricks of creative writing, including characters and world building, as well as have accountability to keep working on our novels.
I am a 3 time NaNo participant. Also - outside of my former job as a therapist/teacher - I am an author, blogger, and editor. I have over 10 years I've gained experience and connections in the field of writing and publishing. My works include fiction and non fiction. I have such a huge passion for writing, reading, and story in general.
Progress on their stories will be the homework for this class.
A way to write their story/novel (computer or pen/paper).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No assessment, but will follow students through their novel writing Journey and share mine with them, as well.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
While I do not plan on focusing on any mature material - this is a creative writing class. As such, we will discuss different kinds of literature, different literary stories, different characters, and student stories. I do tailor some of my responses to the students' interests. The stories discussed may include: violence, death, and mystery or other topics of sensitive natures. None of these issues will be the focus, but they may show up in the class in themes of stories. If you have a learner on the younger range of the class, and have more questions, please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
